by Iniobong Obong, From Paralympics To Olympics Glory Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download From Paralympics To Olympics Glory book, The participants in the unconventional Paralympics at Bethesda did not compete for medals, but for healing. The unlikely hero, the Paralytic man, represents anyone on a journey who seeks to co-author his destiny against all odds. In From Paralympics to Olympics Glory the author Iniobong Obong discusses how the story of a first-century paralytic in John 5 still speaks to us today. It demonstrates how the hand of God can make a way through seemingly insurmountable difficulties. Obong weaves technology, theology and light-hearted narrative into the story of the paralytic at Bethesda. It shows how travellers on the uncertain, treacherous, and despondent road can be inspired to the path of hope, abundant life, peace, liberty, and prosperity that is in Christ Jesus. The book challenges the modern church to bridge scriptural discourse with contemporary human trials and triumphs - to heighten the current spiritual state of the church.

by Elizabeth F. S. Roberts, God S Laboratory Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download God S Laboratory book, "Assisted reproduction, with its test tubes, injections, and gamete donors, often raises concerns about nature, life, and kinship. Yet these concerns do not take the same form everywhere. In this innovative ethnography of in vitro fertilization in a small South American country, Elizabeth Roberts shows that in Ecuador, having children through biotechnological intervention is not only accepted but even embraced. Roberts takes us into clinics, laboratories, and homes, providing a textured picture of the integration of these biotechnologies into Andean life, despite widespread poverty and official condemnation from the Catholic Church. Intimate portraits of patients, donors, and practitioners reveal profoundly different understandings of nature and bodies from those in the United States. The Andean understanding of the body as malleable resonates with cutting-edge theories of the material world put forth by contemporary scholars of science and technology. The Ecuadorian embrace of reproductive technology however is less a reflection of a desire to be "modern", than it is a product of colonial racial history, Catholic theologies, and kinship systems. This clearly written account offers a grounded introduction to debates in science studies and medical anthropology, as well as nuanced ethnography of the mingling of science, religion, and history in Andean family life"--
